Ad jingles

Which ad jingles or catch-phrases from yesteryear still stick in your mind?
For me it's Chef's square shaped soups show how a good soup should be
and McDonald's Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions all on a sesame seed bun. If you could say it within 4 seconds when ordering you got a free cheeseburger or Bigmac or something. I could do it Cool

What about the Dunlop Groundhog ads?
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Ad jingles

There was one which always amused me in a baffled sort of way.
It's for Brown & Polson cornflour, and dates from (I think) the late 70s:
[The scene: a typical middle-class kitchen. In it stands a typical middle-class 'housewife'. She is making gravy. Without warning, she turns to the camera and sings (to the tune of "Humoresque"):]
"When I cook with Brown & Polson,
All my gravy's smooth and wholesome,
And there's not a single lump in sight...."
[She picks up two plates full of food, and waltzes through to the dining room. At the table sits a man of indeterminate middle age; bespectacled, balding, running to fat. In fact a man who is quite clearly dying slowly from the cumulative effects of a diet of fried luncheon meat. The 'housewife' continues singing:]
"Harry used to hate my gravy,
Threatened once to join the Navy,
Brown & Polson really saved the night!"
It was that line about joining the Navy which made it stick in my head all these years.
